Winter can be tough on some people. The days are short, the nights are long and it's cold around the clock.
It doesn't have to be that way. Winter brings a host of activities and events—from holiday happenings to snow sports to outdoor adventures.
This year, Boise Weekly presents its first-ever Snow Guide Calendar of Events, running from early November through the end of January 2016 and covering the Treasure Valley, McCall and the Wood River Valley.
Between those communities, there's something for everyone—from alpine aficionados to winter weenies—proving southern Idaho is a snow season playground.
No matter what, it's going to be a hot time in the cold town this year.
